sickd, almost there hey. so will let u know.


Sprayed the calipers up, no chance of not spraying the Tickford Logo as its not even 1mm down thickness to cover it with something. Most probably will get a thin pick/blade or touchup white paintbrush (fine obviously) and go over it as it wouldnt of happened any other way.

Will post up some pix later on today

Not sure if i can be botherd to check on the 300mm rears as i have 297 slotteds on already

I am sure you could paint the wings silver after you paint the caliper, would be pretty easy.

Gotta find me some 17" rims ... and then the it goes on.
Might just upgrade the fronts only ... will need them doing courier work ... the stock brakes really aren't up to the task.

Well.... 300's would only just fit inside a 15" rim, so ones 30mm larger are going to have trouble fitting into a rim 1"/25mm larger.
